Your Dental Care

If you are new to our office in St. Louis, we request that you schedule a consultation appointment. At your consultation appointment, we do an initial oral examination and introduce you to our friendly and capable staff. This is the beginning of our relationship with you and your family, so we try to make sure you meet everyone and get a good idea of your overall state of oral health. From there we can talk about any next steps if needed. We can discuss procedures such as teeth straightening, cosmetic procedures, or simply a regular cleanings schedule. We combine your goals with our dental health suggestions to create a unique, individualized treatment plan. Contact us today to get started!
